GETTING TO KNOW SHANE O
by Jacqueline Jax host of A.V.A Live Radio
Person Interviewing: NAMOKA TRICE
Song name: “LAST DAYS”
Music Genre: REGGAE
This song was inspired by the inner city youth, who face everyday struggles of survival. Many don’t live past their teens and 20’s and for those who do, the song is a celebration of life and a cause for thanks, to the most high. The song also pays homage to the friends and loved ones, that have passed. This song evokes sadness, happiness, remembrance and thankfulness, all at once. “It’s the emotional roller coaster the fans have been waiting on.”
Typically, I am known to produce Dancehall music, that caters to the party lifestyle, however many of my fans have been asking for wholesome family oriented music, so this new album will feature a lot more songs that can be enjoyed by all. The album will include songs of love, celebration, struggle and most definitely songs that make you move (for all my dancehall fans), as well as collaborations across genres.
Currently, I’m living in Kingston…
where the music scene is big. Every night there is a street party. Many big named artists have come out of Kingston and music is a big part of everyday life and ” a way for people to forget their problems.”
I started doing live performances, when I was eleven. I’m 29 now and In between that time, I have had several major songs, that have received huge reception from the fans and public as a whole, but no matter how many fans or how much hype the songs received, my positioning in the music business remained the same. I felt stagnant and unrecognized for the accomplishments that I had made. On the other hand, the difficulty, has made me even hungrier to succeed, pushing me harder and helping me to create newer and even better music.
I would love to have 5 minutes alone with…
if I could have five minutes alone with anybody, it would be the “Almighty,” for he has given me this life, carried me through when I thought I wouldn’t make it and blessed me with this amazing talent. “I am so thankful for this life.”
